I am climbing a three

to get to the top

slipping down the curve

I loop my leg around the middle

and hang

upside down

the five beneath me

laughs

its belly jiggling

I am three fifths of the way up…dangling

five gives me a wobbly kind of balance

like a flat topped trampoline allowing me to bounce

four points a strange direction next to me

I’ll get there soon enough…the way is clear

it’s a practice run to the top

to get to ONE at the end of this equation

where I’ll pull myself up

and balance precariously like everyone else

as a whole person…

ha ha… a fraction of one at least!

Between work and study have been finding it difficult to find time for poetry but managed this morning… I wonder what I am studying at the moment…Argh!! Maths!! My worst subject at school but finding I am beginning to like it…I think! 😉

For dverse Poetics in not so real world

ha. fun play with numbers…i may need to share this with my algebra kids…they would get a kick out of it…i imagine they feel a bit crazy trying to get to the end of some of the equations that i throw at them….

Brilliant writing and excellent imagery.

I love how your mind works and this piece breaths life to the universe. 🙂

This makes me smile! Very clever approach to Anthony’s prompt.

Fun… Made me smile

ha… oh goodness, I loved math up until I got to the 4th grade, then it was English that grabbed me. oy, memories of my worst subject. hahaha

Nice play on numbers 🙂 nice to seem them displayed in a different, more personified way.

ohoh… math was never my strong side… and i could get lost in trying to climb out those equations easily… fun image… and here’s to more imagination in algebra…smiles

Ha.. Numbers where easy with me.. But I do remember when math was certainly part of my fantasies.

Lovely play with numbers – you made the impossible, possible!

heh-heh…just a practice run ‘eh? Fantastical! Loving the low fives! x

Ha ha thanks Polly…I wish it was always that easy and fun! 🙂

This is both very clever and funny. Just shows that one can have fun with numbers.

Haha.. and the numbers come alive.. and truly they do for me.. as numbers have always held a very deep fascination to me..:)
